The House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to remove all Confederate statues from public display in the U.S. Capitol, but they didn’t get any support from Republicans.
The measure would also replace the bust of former Chief Justice of the United States Roger Taney, who authored the Dred Scott decision that declared that people of African descent were not U.S. citizens.
The House passed the measure 285-120. All Democratic members supported the legislation; all ‘no’ votes came from Republican members, including nine Republicans representing Indiana.
Second District Congresswoman Jackie Walorski did not support the proposal. Third District Congressman Jim Banks was absent and was visiting the southern border on Tuesday.
The measure now moves to the Senate.
